Users who pulled this comic:


  1. The first 20 pages of this comic is gonna be Clint trying to find a working VHS player

  2. Clint, you have to make someone else watch the tape! That’s the only way!

  3. Can pulido continue Aja’s awesome art?

  4. I wonder what the waveform on that cover sounds like?

  5. I’m so glad I read this before I bought it. I’m still going to buy it, but if I had got home and opened it up and NOT saw Aja work, I might have crumpled into a whimpering heap of raw emotion.

  6. No Aja?!?! How long until he’s back on? He’s… He’s… He’s coming back on right? (scared face).

  7. Is this a good jumping om point? My younger bro wants to get into comics and he set on Hawkeye because of the movie.


    Here you go if your interested in seeing Javier Pulido fill in work for this weeks issue.

  9. I don’t pick up this book but I really dig this cover.

  10. Hey Bro! I’m finally beginning to come around to Fraction’s work. Just read the first three issues back to back and love it. Interested in seeing what Pulido can do.

  11. Heard great things. I subscribed.

    Will be sitting down with the first few issues soon.

  12. I think I would still buy this book if it had no dialogue. It would be kinda fun because then I could create my own. 😉 Not that the current writing is bad, I’m lovin’ it.

  13. Quite simply my favorite book on the stands right now. I am a wellspring of joy.

    Jeez guys, this week is an embarrassment of riches, huh?

  14. I recommend everyone to listen to Kieron Gillen’s “Decompressed” podcast, in particular the episodes featuring Matt Fraction and the “Marvel Method”. I believe the lack of dynamism in this issue compared to the previous is due to the fact that this was done in a traditional full script format (Fraction mentioned 3 of the first 4 issues were done via MM), rather than the sprawling freedom afforded to Aja in the first 3.

    Nonetheless, I’ve been loving Fraction’s plots and dialogue in this book. He gives Hawkeye and Kate great voices.

    Matt Hollingsworth as well deserves major praise for giving the book such a unique style from anything else in Marvel’s repertoire.

    Clearly Marvel’s breakthrough of this year.

    • Agree with everything you say, especially about Gillen’s Decompressed podcast. It’s an incredible resource for any aspiring comic book creator.

  15. I have been enjoying this take on Hawkeye by Fraction, but this issue was little bit of a let down mainly do to missing Aja’s work. Pulido isn’t a bad fill-in, my only real problem with his work in this book was how he drew Kate especially in the ending panels. When she takes off the mask i actually said “Is that suppose to be Kate?”. Just my opinion, still a interesting story.

  16. Yeah, I missed Aja but the art still wasn’t bad. Just got spoiled after the first 3 issues. Very intriguing story though.

  17. Um, bad art sucks for this book.
